For Your Money:
The Sipsmith team will greet you with a Gin tipple as they guide you through a short history of gin. You’ll hear all about how Sipsmith came to be and gain a huge amount of respect and understanding for the Gin boom it triggered. You’ll visit the four and a half stills mainly star gazing at Prudence, Patience and Constance to learn about the intricacies of distilling before sitting down for a tutored tasting of the Sipsmith range.
A word from Gin Foundry:
With their Sipping Service in full swing, Sipsmith have a lot of liqueurs and experimental one off releases where you get to see their creative side, while the “core range” is always worth revisiting as many times as you can – meaning this tour is always going to end up with tasty tipples in your glass no matter what is being served. As Chiswick can be quite a trek for those not based in West London, it might be worth looking at booking onto the tour that they do in partnership with local restaurant, Charlotte’s Bistro. Afterward the tour of the distillery, they will take you on a 10 minute walk (back towards the tube so it’s in the direction everyone wants to go in!) to Charlotte’s Bistro, where you will continue your gin-filled evening with a delicious gin inspired three course supper. When the evening draws to a close you will have your very own 35cl bottle of Sipsmith London Dry Gin to enjoy sipping at home too, making the £85 tag quite good value for money compared to if you did the two separately from one another.
